As a humourist and satirist Stephen Leacock (1869 - 1944) is considered by many to be the Canadian counterpart to Mark Twain. In the early Twentieth Century he was one of the most widely-read authors in the English speaking world.
As drama was one of the many genres used by Leacock as a basis for satire, it was only to be expected that the works of Ibsen would attract his attention. In this pithy parody Leacock successfully incorporates many of the standard elements in Iben's dramaturgy with remarkable economy.
